Trump’s Gutting of Toxics Regulations Will Mean Higher Profits for Polluters and Higher Cancer Rates for the American People

 

Trump claims to “stand” with the people of Iran. He doesn’t even stand with the people of America, repeatedly attacking our regulations that keep our drinking water safe. This is reality, Trumptards, and you deserve what you get.

EPA rollbacks already touching Americans’ lives

Picking cabbage that morning, the workers noticed a tarry smell drifting from a nearby orchard. Mouths and lips tingled or went numb. Throats went dry. Soon some workers were vomiting and collapsing.

Officials in California’s farm-rich Kern County, where the workers fell ill, concluded that the harvesters were reacting to a pesticide, chlorpyrifos, misapplied at the neighboring orchard.

Five weeks before, in one of his first acts at EPA, Pruitt had reversed an Obama-era initiative to ban all food crop uses of the pesticide, which damages the brain and nervous system of fetuses and young children and has been prohibited as a household bug-killer since 2001.

Trump’s other environmental assault today concerns coal replacing clean energy…

E.P.A. Drafts Rule on Coal Plants to Replace Clean Power Plan

This thug and his gang of cronies are an abomination, an assault on us all, the enemy of the people of America. It’s your air and water they are polluting, you brain damaged Trumptard imbeciles.

Frankly, Americans don’t know what “great” is, and believe nonsense from charlatans. They have no idea, because they have been infantilized and programmed with ideological gibberish.

The Robber Baron age was not “great” for the overwhelming majority of citizens. Learn.

Obama’s EPA is ready to radically raise the amount of radiation in our water.

Comments

Beyond Nuclear:

Tell EPA: don’t repeat Flint! Protect our drinking water from radioactivity!
The EPA is proposing VERY high radiation levels for drinking water that can be used not only for emergency releases, but in any instance governments and regulators wish to ignore more protective standards. Added to food and other exposures, these levels will be even more dangerous to public health.

These levels can be thousands of times higher than current EPA standards. There is indication in documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act that, in some cases, these allowed exposures could cause acute radiation effects, such as vomiting and fever. Clearly EPA doesn’t remember Flint, MI and how they utterly failed to protect public health, particularly health of pregnancies and children.

Further, EPA is basing its pregnancy and childhood exposure levels on nearly unobtainable reports from a scientific body that takes funding from the nuclear industry lobbying group, the NEI.
Time is short so A CALL is needed! PLEASE CALL Gina McCarthy at 202-564-4700.
Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA is ignoring their own drinking water and risk standards, which are more protective of public health, in favor of industry.
Tell her it is unacceptable that the EPA seems to be keeping from public scrutiny parts of the Protective Action Guide (PAG), such as all radionuclide levels allowed by the guide; and not providing complete documents on which the PAG is based.

Tell her it is unacceptable that EPA would base childhood exposure levels on a report from a group that takes money from industry lobbyists.

If you also wish to comment on these so-called Protective Action Guides, the DEADLINE for comments is July 25, 2016. Beyond Nuclear will be making detailed comments on EPA’s proposed levels.

Whistleblower: EPA Officials Covered Up Toxic Fracking Emissions for Years
“…the very inventor of the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, an engineer named Touché Howard, had been attempting to blow the whistle for years…”

 

There are no conspiracies in America, of course.

“Dr. David Allen, then-head of EPA’s Science Advisory Board, has led an ongoing, three-year effort to cover up underreporting of the primary device, the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, and a second device used to measure gas releases from equipment across the natural gas industry. Allen is also on the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin, where he has been funded by the oil and gas industries for years.”
